Apache HBase

HBase is an open source, non-relational, distributed database modeled after Google’s BigTable and is written in Java. It is developed as part of Apache Software Foundation’s Apache Hadoop project and runs on top of HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System), providing BigTable-like capabilities for Hadoop.  It provides a fault-tolerant way of storing large quantities of sparse data (small amounts of information caught within a large collection of empty or unimportant data, such as finding the 50 largest items in a group of 2 billion records, or finding the non-zero items representing less than 0.1% of a huge collection).

HBase features compression, in-memory operation, and Bloom filters on a per-column basis. HBase is a column-oriented key-value data store and has been idolized widely because of its lineage with Hadoop and HDFS.  It runs on top of HDFS and is well-suited for faster read and write operations on large datasets with high throughput and low input/output latency.
